Accelerating Agribusinesses in the North West
TechnoServe is working with farmers in the Bojanala region of the North West province to help them to realize their potential, accelerate growth and contribute to the improvement of their communities. With funding from ABSA, TechnoServe selected 15 farming entities to partake in a holistic farm business development initiative. Technical expertise and business linkages have been developed to assist these farmers. Business plans with precise objectives have also been developed for each of the farming businesses.
TechnoServe has entered into a contract with a local packhouse which supplies fresh produce to several of the commercial airlines and has provided a secure market to many of the farmers in the program. The project’s success and impact has resulted in more funds being committed by ABSA in order to expand the program into Limpopo, Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga.
